Travel back to when theaters were the highlight of the town. Amazingly well-kept retro theater with iron-clad seating, beautiful wooden floors, table seating for large groups or parties, and amazing prices!

This theater is fun with its old time charm. It still has the original seats in the main movie theater. The staff was very friendly. Making our visit even better. The movie played without interruption. And you can't beat the $5 price for matinees.

Remember the last time you visited a movie theater with very reasonable ticket prices ($5 matinee prices for all shows), comfortable seating, and all delivered in the charming setting of a traditional small town film venue? Most of us can't remember that time. Good news-...More

From the moment you walk into this Rialto movie theater - you sense that small town appeal from the warm and genuine greeting to the very reasonable..inexpensive ticket prices. The normal candy, popcorn and soda are available...but they also had hotdogs, nachos and wine and...More

I would pay just to sit inside and have a cup of coffee. Much of the interior is original from the 30's , box office, chairs, curtains-real treat for lovers of old movie theaters. Luckily, we can also enjoy the latest movies. Great find in...More
